Riga *Might* be coming back


Charlton look set to turn to Jose Riga as the man to help them beat the drop from the Championship.
And the Addicks could move before Tuesday’s Championship game at Huddersfield in bringing back the 58-year-old.
Interim head coach Karel Fraeye is under huge pressure after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Colchester United in the FA Cup made it nine games without a victory for the South London club.
And Riga may be asked to take on the job for the remainder of the season - as he did when he replaced Chris Powell in March 2014.
Then he and Fraeye, who worked as his assistant, secured safety in the penultimate game of the season.
Riga was not retained that summer and instead moved to Blackpool - but his stay at Bloomfield Road was not a success and he was the second shortest-serving boss in their history as he lasted just four months.
Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet appointed Riga as Standard Liege boss in February 2015 but he again did not stay on after the end of the campaign.
He joined French outfit Metz, but was sacked by them in December.
Riga would become the club’s fifth boss since Duchatelet bought Charlton two years ago.
The Addicks are 23rd in the table but only a point behind Rotherham, who do have a better goal difference.
